How do I meet people when I'm abroad?

It can be hard to meet people when you are in a new and strange environment! The best advice we can give is to challenge yourself to try something new every day and to get out of your comfort zone. If your program offers to arrange a tandem conversation partner, take them up on it. Join a student organization. Teach English at a school. Volunteer at a local community center or event. Find a group that shares your passions and interests.
